Wandering the Markets of Oaxaca with Friends
We were recently visiting the South-eastern region of Mexico in the state of Oaxaca where we have often gone spice hunting. This trip was to be strictly recreational however, but I’ll admit that some habits are hard for us to break, and travelling without a clearly stated objective remains a cherished practice that we‘re not ready to rid ourselves of quite yet. And like with any bad habit, we try to get other people doing it too. This time it was our old friends from Sri Lanka, who were coming to Mexico for their cinnamon business. We had some pretty loosely-stated objectives from the start, but actually it turned out that a good market meander was just what we, and our cinnamon-growing friends, were looking for in Oaxaca.
